What We’re Reading: October 21, 2010 Edition

Dead Sea Scrolls DigitizedIn the news this week, Google is assisting in making the Dead Sea Scrolls available online in the near future, a Virginia textbook has been criticized for misrepresenting the numbers of black Confederate soldiers, and for those in the D.C. area, the U.S. Capitol Historical Society is hosting book signings today and next week. We came across a number of articles on scholarly writing this week. Check out the Writing History site (and submit your writing), a look at citations (and the lack of them) in popular history books, and two perspectives on Open Access Week. Then, we present two education-related links. First, EDSITEment has some spooky lesson plans and then Sir Ken Robinson’s talk on education gets animated. Finally, take a glimpse into the past with the National Museum of Natural History’s Africana Collection, a cell phone tour at the Seattle Art Museum, the Paul Revere House  in Boston, one historic gastronomist, and NPR and a series of shooting gallery photos.
